Even end times are part of God's plan

Many Christian conservatives were devastated when the U.S. Congress gave a final stamp of approval on the 2020 Electoral Vote on January 6. They remain convinced that the election was stolen and wonder why God would allow a pro-Israel president like Trump to be defeated by someone so hostile to the Jewish state and the Jewish people.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries and host of the "Understanding the Times" radio program, points to chapters 38 and 39 of Ezekiel, which outline the Gog and Magog war.

"That's the Russian invasion of Israel," she notes. "They are accompanied by Iran and Turkey and some other players, but the thing that's intriguing in that passage is that it's clear that not one nation on earth comes to Israel's aid. Honestly, I believe if Donald Trump were in office, he would not wait even a day to step to the aid of Israel if she's invaded by any army, let alone Russia and these other allies."

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)So Markell believes this is all part of God's bigger plan. 

"An anti-Israel administration [will] be in power when this Gog-Magog Ezekiel 38-39 invasion happens," she continues. "That doesn't mean it's going to happen tomorrow, though it could. We don't know the timing. We just know it's in the latter days, and I believe we're in the latter days."

And the radio host asserts that God has everything under control.

"This hasn't caught him by surprise, and everything is falling into place," Markell concludes.
